The strategic goal is to create research cores with advanced technological facilities in the form of research platforms by associating preclinical research laboratories and clinical research centers within the Fundeni Clinical Institute in a unique entity.

The newly created structure provides logistical support for biomedical research through the coordination of studies, quality management, data monitoring, dissemination of good clinical practice, database management and data analysis. Infrastructure is also dedicated to the production of vectors for gene and cellular therapy, as well as for the acquisition of new agents with therapeutic potential in digestive affection.
